Door speakers on 850 blown. How to Replace?

Let’s talk about blown Door speakers

Replace Door Speakers on your Volvo 850

Actually, it’s kind of the IMPEDANCE that matters. Sure, the sensitivity tells you how efficiently your amp’s wattage will get converted to sound, but the impedance determines how much wattage your amp will produce and how likely it is to BLOW UP. If your bass shakers are 16ohms, then it won’t add much load if you wire them in parallel with the existing speakers – it will drop the total impedance from 4 ohms to 3.2 ohms.

Bonus! More on the Volvo 850

Volvo unveiled an entirely new model series in June 1991, the Volvo 850 GLT. The Volvo 850 GLT was launched under the banner of “A dynamic car with four world-beating breakthroughs”.

The four new features were: transverse 5-cylinder engine driving the front wheels, Delta-link rear axle which combined the dynamics and ride comfort of independent suspension with the security of a live rear axle, the SIPS integrated side-impact protection system, and the self-adjusting front seat belt mechanism.

The exterior design of the 850 bore a strong Volvo identity, and its 740 and 940 heritage was immediately apparent.

Volvo 850 GLT received a tumultuous welcome; seldom has a new car reaped so many awards as the 850.

Over the intervening years, the 850 series has been expanded with additional variants, among them turbocharged petrol versions and a direct-injection turbo-diesel.

The Volvo 850 was also the first car in the world to offer side-impact airbags, which were introduced in autumn 1994.

In model year 1997, the S70 replaced the 850 Sedan car.
